This Saturday, 4/20/19, your HBFA will be cooking pancakes, sausage and hot dogs for the Kiwanis Family Fun Day Easter Event.  This is a huge event that takes place every year, and is a great time to bring the kiddos out for the Easter egg hunt.  We are planning on cooking 400+ breakfasts, as well as, enough hot dogs for 1000 people.  All the food has been donated, so we are in need of people to assist.  It starts at 8am and goes till 1pm, and any time that you can donate will be greatly appreciated.  The location is the Sports Complex, 18100 Goldenwest, and we plan on getting the trailer there around 8am to start cooking.  Please contact me if you are interested, and if you have any questions, feel free to give me a call.  Thank you for reading.
